Rajeeb Dey, entrepreneur and founder of several startups, is quite clear that university offers a great opportunity to acquire key workplace skills. Looking back at his time at uni, he believes that what you do above and beyond your course is vital.
Joining societies, running events and volunteering, he says, can all put you in a position of strength by giving you skills which transfer to your career.
